So, I made another Roller Skate Dress (pattern by Oliver + S). The young one requested mermaids. I was happy to oblige.

She wrinkled her nose. Turned her head away and said; “you picked the wrong mermaids”. I was sad. But I got back on the horse.

I used a new-to-me Japanese pattern and made a 2nd mermaid dress. Well, really more like a top, but cute, at least I thought it was cute. I revealed it to her, her eyes popped and then she paused and said “I don’t like green” and refuses to wear either.

This is as close as I could get to the dresses on her. Humility, that is my lesson for the day.

Well, I am late to this party, but I am loving the Roller Skate Dress by Oliver + S. I got my pattern on sale at Cloth and Bobbin! check them out!

I finished this one over the weekend. Size 5, a little roomy on my size 4 girl so this one will last a while.

It is a fully lined dress which was a little unexpected. I have to search out a light weight lining, even that minty green muslin felt too heavy.
